Storyline

The gangster Bulla (Mukesh Rishi) becomes the crime lord of Mumbai after killing his rival Lamboo Aata (Ishrat Ali). However, when his right hand man Kala Shetty (Rami Reddy) is arrested by police due to the intervention of a coolie and a good samaritan Shankar (Mithun Chakraborty), Bulla swears revenge. He manages to trap Shankar's sister Geeta (Sapna) into a sham marriage with Gulshan (Gulshan Rana) who is a scamster working for the pimp Lucky Chikna (Razak Khan). Bulla's younger brother Chutiya (Shakti Kapoor), who has long been impotent, becomes sex-crazed under the influence of London-imported pills provided by his loving elder brother and proceeds to brutally rape Geeta and ends up killing her. When Shankar's policeman father is also killed by the corrupt Inspector Kale (Rana Jung Bahadur), Shankar swears that he will kill Bulla, Chutiya, their ally Potey (Mohan Joshi) and the rest of their entourage within ten days.

best possible montage of B-grade Bollywood cinema
20 March 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This film epitomizes the brand of Movie making that has generated quite a lot of wealth to its makers, particularly from the Eastern Hindi speaking belt of India. Starring the irrepressible Mithun Chakravarty along with a host of well known character actors from the B-grade movies this movie is a riot in the first half but does sag towards the end. The dialogs of the movie are truly memorable. No emotion, no relation is spared the satire. The reason for the movie gaining a cult status in India is the absolute absurdity that reaches heights never quite seen or dreamed of. the cardboard caricatures that any Indian movie goer is readily familiar with are all employed in full force and do full justice to the traditions of Bollywood.

The movie's status in Indian cinema is probably the equivalent of Plan 9 from outer space or show girls in Hollywood.
